I keep on hearing it all of the time, and I never knew where "87" came from? Does anyone know how it was created? It seems to be the inside joke on this board, and I was wondering when it was created? LOL, I bet I will get some funny "87" answer, but perhaps someone will tell the truth. Thanks!

Its just a random number made up a while ago to answer all the repetitve questions that get asked here all the time such as, How many mags are enough or How much money is a M60 machine gun?

The annoying part is the guys, such as some of the above posters who use it all the time and things its SO DAMN FUNNY...............................

ITS SO NOT.
